But it's out of stock at John Lewis

I bought it from currys for this price a year ago, it's not worth 300 quid.

Lots of clean pets

They put the price up for 3 weeks just to claim it's half price. Don't be fooled!

I think we paid around £200, but to be fair it's the best one we've had. Bear in the you need to use their own bags to get decent results and they are very expensive.

Get a dyson- no expensive bags at all!

how is this hot?

Dyson are poor compared to Miele.

Bags can be bought for around a quid each off eBay and last for ages. No emptying disgusting dust containers.

Dyson is expensive too and bags are better, acting as the filter. No need to wash or buy expensive new filters.

I am not sure if this is the case really, some of the bags are £15 for 3 even on ebay for the Miele, and I don't think 6L compared to 2L is that much bigger, don't get me wrong I currently have a Dyson but will next be getting a Miele, but I don't think it will be better or cheaper to run. This model is rated highly on Which btw, hot.

I had to send mine back as the cat hated it.

Excellent hoover, we never even have to use it on full power!

I think we got ours for £120 from a deal on here though

IMHO Dyson are useless. Poor performing, overpriced and over hyped. Won't be buying one again.
Miele vacuum cleaner are the opposite.

Best hoover we had too.

That is your opinion but I have had 2 Dyson vacum cleaners and they have both been brilliant, and the service is absolutely brilliant if anything goes wrong.

I looked at a Miele S700 in my local JL two weekends ago but decided to plump for the slightly more expensive S8310 instead. I don't have pets so I decided that I didn't need the charcoal odour filter. The supplied turbo brush beats the carpet but I felt the standard floor head with the S8310 would be sufficient. The S8310 has better control over the motor (the dial on the S700 isn't as well designed as the - / + buttons on the S8 series), takes larger GN bags (the S700 takes the smaller FJN bags) and is slightly better built. I believe the S700 is manufactured for Miele in China rather than in Germany. The S700 is manufactured specifically for special clearance offers and is not part of the normal Miele vacuum ranges (I went to Miele Experience in Abingdon recently and the S700 is missing from their displayed model line up). The S700 lacks a slot to hold the wand on both sides of the unit (S8 has a slot on both sides), lacks one touch power cord retraction (you have to hold the button down whilst the cord retracts). The S8310 can be had from the same supplier for £169.99. I'm happier with it because it is the latest range rather than based on slightly older technology and has a 2200W motor compared to a 2000W. I also consider that it looks aesthetically better.

I wouldn't have a bag less vacuum cleaner again. I gave away one today to someone after having avoided using it for five years. Doing so reminded me of the mess it made when emptying. I prefer bags.

The best thing Dyson did was make a the mundane vacuum cleaner a fashion statement for UK housewives (and husbands) to "aspire" too. Good compared to the £50 we all used to spend on the latest Hoover or Electrolux, poor compared to others including the Miele at a lesser price.


oh and for bags for this - FJM can be had from a LM Electrical ( lmelectricalspares.co.uk/ind…fjm ) for a quid a bag and are of equal quality and capacity to the originals. Been using them in ours for over a decade. They are just up the road from me so I save on postage too. Can also be had through their eBay outlet.

The S8310 is £169.99, it's worth the extra in my opinion!

In respect of filters, every vacuum cleaner has them. At a minimum all filters need cleaning. Some are there to protect the motor and some are there to capture dust particles. Charcoal filters used to reduce pet odours won't last indefinitely. They will need replacing fairly regularly. The charcoal filters on the inside lid of my kitchen bin do! More expensive HEPA filters don't last indefinitely either. I've read that those have a life cycle of about 6 months but it will depend on how much one uses the machine.

If you select bag less then the container will need cleaning because not all of the dirt will empty out. The filter inside the container will need slooshing out. Machines with bags do cost more but they are easier to keep clean and to dispose of the waste. Genuine Miele boxes of 4 bags come with basic filters to replace the ones that they consider will no longer be as effective as they were. I don't imagine spending more than £9.95 on 4 bags and 2 filters (for air and motor protection) per year.

The charcoal filter also needs replacing maybe once every 3-5 years (ours gets a lot of use as we have dogs and cats at home). When you do the difference in suction is quite evident as it lifts the carpet off the gripper sometimes LOL.

This and Sebo only quality vacuum cleaners

Id recommend a miele over a dyson any day
After 3 dysons over the years we bought a miele cats and dogs
Bags are cheap enough on ebay

I'll add to that, Compare a Dyson to a Miele and you'll never go back, been through 2 Dysons and they both left bits on the carpet after hoovering that the miele eats up. A nice gimmick and great to see a UK company doing well but the performance is sub standard and the price is astronomical.

I binned a rubbish Dyson 12 years ago and bought this same Miele and it's still as good now as the day I first bought it.

Someone dumped one of these in a skip near me - I took it home to see if I could fix it; stuck a new plug on it and it works perfectly.

Now that's a hot deal, skip-specific though I'm afraid!

I've had a S6 Miele for a fair few years now (small but perfectly formed) but it has been amazing, the suction of my little Miele with the parquet floor head is just immense.

No Dyson can compare, honest

If I remember as well the warranty can be extended to 10 years for about £50 I think.

and you openly admit you go pinching out of skips...classy

Thinking of voting cold because of animal cruelty...do people really hoover up cats and dogs with these?

Well, any way you look at it I'm still £150 better off and the world is minus one landfilled hoover - So, environmentally classy perhaps?

lol ..you got me, fair point..;)

My cat and dog by Miele has lasted 15 years so well worth the money HOT HOT HOT

Had all the vacuum cleaners going as my wife vacuums the stairs with it at the top. I have had a henry for 3 years now and it is the dogs danglies.

Strange thay ive had a few dyaons and everyones been brilliant.Always managed too empty it ok and use it and combined with dysons top customer service id rather stick to them then this old antique.Good washers but vacuum cleaners no thanks.Wouldnt use anything else apart from dyson.and.never had a fault with one.
